Something I made 22 years ago

This is a cross-stich sampler I made in 1989 for my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary!  I couldn't resist retrieving it from my grandparents home now that both of my grandparents and my mom have gone to heaven.  This will be something I will cherish for a long time to come.  It will remind me of how much they loved each other.  It also reminds me of special time in my life because when I made this I had given birth to my first son Jimmy.  It was done on finely woven linen.  This gift was loved by my grandparents for 22 years!
